Connecting the Dots Between Mexican Border Corruption and Islam’s War on America

In a stunning article “The Enemy Within: Bribes Bore a Hole in the U.S. Border” Ron Nixon writing for the New York Times has exposed the thousands of court records and internal agency documents that show that over the last 10 years almost 200 employees and contract workers of the Department of Homeland Security have taken nearly $15 million in bribes while being sworn to protect the nation’s borders and enforce immigration laws. 

These employees, reported Nixon, have looked the other way as tons of drugs and thousands of illegal aliens were smuggled into the United States, the records show. They have illegally sold green cards and other immigration documents, have entered law enforcement databases and given sensitive information to drug Islam border securitycartels. In one case, the information was used to arrange the attempted murder of an informant. 

“So it makes sense that cartels would target and try to corrupt border interdiction agents,” Fred Burton, chief security officer at Stratfor, a global intelligence company, and a former deputy chief of counterterrorism at the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service told Nixon. “It’s very similar to the tactics and tradecraft used by foreign intelligence services during the Cold War.” 

Most worryingly, Nixon reports that transportation security officers and screeners with access to secure areas of airports that could be used to smuggle weapons and even carry bombs onto planes have taken hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes as well, records show. 

Now, here’s why this is so important – and it’s not about drug smuggling. 

Our friends at Judicial Watch report that Latin America is a hotbed of Islamic terrorism where groups like ISIS and Hezbollah operate freely and raise large sums of money to finance terrorist activities in other countries, mainly the United States.

According to the Judicial Watch review of a new report released by Spain’s Defense Ministry, “Latin America represents an important region for Islamic radicalism because conditions enable the free, almost undetectable, movement of their members throughout the region.” 

Governments in the region consider Islamic terrorism to be a foreign problem, the report says, and intelligence agencies are ill equipped to handle the threat they represent. “The ignorance involving the threat of jihadist terrorism in Latin America has been such that some governments have refused to cooperate with U.S. authorities and other intelligence services,” the disturbing assessment reveals. The report was released this month by the division of Spain’s Defense agency known as Instituto Español de Estudios Estratégicos (IEEE), Spanish Institute of Strategic Studies. The document, authored by a counterterrorism expert, is titled “El radicalismo islámico en América Latina. De Hezbolá al Daesh (Estado Islámico),” Islamic Radicalism in Latin America, from Hezbollah to ISIS. 

Now here’s the key nexus between the bribery of U.S. government employees, Mexico’s culture of corruption and Islam’s war on America and the West:

The Lebanese group Hezbollah is identified as having the largest fundraising operations in the region, though others, such as ISIS, are also prominent. The terrorist organizations have teamed up with established drug trafficking conglomerates to raise and launder large quantities of cash. The report identifies a group called El clan Barakat in Paraguay and Joumaa in Colombia as two examples of drug trafficking enterprises that have long worked with Islamic jihadists to launder money. Spain’s military experts refer to the relationships as a “marriage of convenience” between Latin American organized crime and Muslim terrorists with different objectives and interests. “Each takes advantage of the benefits that the relationship provides,” the report states. 

ISIS is expanding quickly in Latin America, the report warns, revealing that around 100 individuals from the region’s large Muslim community have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join terrorist groups recently. Argentina and Brazil have the largest Muslim populations in Latin America with more than 1 million each, the report says. Venezuela, Mexico, Peru and Chile also have large and rapidly growing Muslim populations. Trinidad and Tobago, Caribbean islands on the northern edge of Latin America, are identified as “especially worrisome” because local authorities reported that 70 of their citizens traveled to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS. Additionally, nine of the islands’ citizens were detained in Turkey attempting to cross the border into Syria. The report cites a 2012 article in a military publication from Trinidad that compares the growth of radical Islam in the country to a group of violent Muslims that tried to overthrow the government in 1990. 

The strong connection between Islamic terrorists and Latin America has been developing for years and Judicial Watch has reported it extensively, especially when it comes to Mexico. 

Hezbollah is the progenitor of a host of American Muslim organizations identified as unindicted coconspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism funding trial, including CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations.   

In July 2007, seven officials from a now-defunct charity known as the Holy Land Foundation (HLF for short) went on trial for supporting Hamas, the terrorist organization that represents the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Association for Palestine (the precursor to what today is known as the Council on American Islamic Relations), and the multi-university umbrella organization known as the Muslim Students Association were all implicated. 

CAIR has well documented* ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood – a terrorist organization outlawed in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and dedicated to Islamic supremacism, terrorism as a means of achieving political objectives and spreading the misogynistic totalitarian ideology of Sharia Law. 

All of these organizations are active today, and they are greatly bolstered in their position by the fact the American public is not being informed that our enemies are not far away in the Middle East, but right here on our southern border and, through bribery, corruption and Obama’s open borders policies, moving freely into our own cities and towns. 

*For more on the ties between the Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim organizations that explains how they ARE the Muslim Brotherhood of North America see the links below.  Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) are all three unindicted co-conspirators in the Texas Holy Land Foundation trial.  They tried to get their names removed from the list that was made public--and 5th Circuit Court of appeals denied it.  The Court concluded that there was a preponderance of evidence showing that all three were intricately involved with Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
